Sesame Street Season 37 premiered on August 14, 2006.


The 37th season of Sesame Street focuses on getting kids ready for school and the classroom experience. The season featured the debut of a new female Muppet character named Abby Cadabby, who introduces herself in the cold open of the season's first two episodes (4109 and 4110) as a fairy in training who recently moved to Sesame Street. Every other episode begins with a cold open featuring Grover, Elmo, and Zoe singing "You never know who you'll meet on Sesame Street!" followed by Gordon announcing who the viewer will meet in today's episode.

The season introduced a new human character to the street - Marco, Gina's new baby. A three-episode story line (beginning in 4130) followed the adoption of Marco from Guatemala. Gina's adopting of Marco allowed Sesame Street to deal with issues of international adoption and non-traditional families. He appeared in a couple episodes the following two seasons but did not appear again until season 42. As a new baby was introduced to the show this season, the previous Sesame Street children, Miles and Gabi, entered adulthood as they graduated from high school (in 4112).

Episodes in season 37 featured a "This Is the Game Today" bumper introducing game or physical movement segments, and one episode showed the return of the Twiddlebugs (in computer-animated form).

New Elmo's World segments for its eighth season include the subjects of Friends, Penguins, Doctors, Building Things, Horses, and Fast & Slow. New installments of "Global Grover" include visits to Germany, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Iceland, and Hawaii.

Starting in this season, the Fix-It Shop turned Mail-It Shop is now the Fix-It Shop once more, with no on-screen reason why.


Parody sketches and segments include Scramalot (a Grouch parody of the musical Spamalot), Survivor: Musical Chairs (a parody of the reality show Survivor), Outrageous Makeover: Home Addition (a parody of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), Law and Order: Special Letters Unit (a parody of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), and the song "The Breakfast Club" (a parody of the film The Breakfast Club). Several new Dinner Theatre sketches include "What We're Having for Dinner" (a parody of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner), "Man of La Muncha" (a parody of Man of La Mancha), and "Omelet, Prince of Dinner" (a parody Hamlet).


Episodes 4109 - 4134 (26 episodes)


  • Starting this season, the U.S. Department of Education no longer provided funding to the show.
  • Several episode numbers were changed this year, from taping to air. The episodes focusing on Marco's adoption were moved to November in order to coincide with National Adoption Month. The original episode numbers include:
  • 4109 -- Gina adopts a baby
  • 4110 -- Gina brings the baby home
  • 4123 -- Abby Cadabby comes to Sesame Street
  • 4129 -- Abby starts school for the first time
  • This was the final season to use the 2002 "blocks" opening sequence and the 1992 animated "dancing city" closing credits.
  • This was the final season to credit the Muppet performers as "Jim Henson's Muppets." Beginning with the following season, Jim Henson's name is dropped, and they are simply credited as the "Muppets of Sesame Street."
  • The Journey to Ernie segments are discontinued this season and replaced by "This Is the Game Today," although the former still appears in the opening.
